Subject: [EXPERIMENT] String- and number-specific bitwise ops
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 342b
The new ops &. |. ^. ~. and the strictly-numeric behaviour of & | ^ ~ under the ‘bitwise’ feature are being added as an experiment in perl 5.22.0. This ticket will collect bugs and other acceptance-criteria tickets to track before these new ops can be considered accepted or failed in a future version of perl. -- Father Chrysostomos

This feature has been in three stable releases of perl, with no changes to the implementation as far as I can remember. As evidenced by ticket #132589, this feature is actually being used in the wild, and the only bug report it has had is not actually a bug in Perl, but in a module. I suggest we accept this feature as stable for 5.28, and enable it with ‘use v5.28‘. -- Father Chrysostomos

Makes sense. Any objections?

There weren’t any, so I have gone ahead with this and merged by branch in commit b566b29. -- Father Chrysostomos
